Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!
I've hardly ever reviewed on mascaras, only because I don't have this need to hoard as much as I would love to, I'd like to try mascaras from Maybelline or Loreal, or even Etude House, but Etude House has a price that cost more than 10 Essence mascaras. I think I'll try Holika Holika's mascaras, cuz I find them very affordable below $10.
It is an Essence All Eyes On Me Mascara in 03 Deep Purple. It is said to have multi-effects on your lashes, such as extra-volume, length, curl, thickness and separation.
I actually bought this on a whim, because it has a low price tag of $3.90, which I found to be very cheap for a mascara! Essence products are only found in Paloma, you can apply for membership and get more discount! :D
And as you can see from my picture, you can see that it's a navy-ish color, but in real life it's more of a very dark purple. It tints my lashes to purple, but I don't really mind, because it does give the effect that I want.
It definitely curls and volumizes my lashes, though not sure about the effect from the thick and length department. But overall, for its price tag, I am basically happy with the result.
The downside to this mascara is that it's not long-lasting and it's not waterproof. To salvage the effect, I use my non-useful Silkygirl Hi-Definition Mascara to make it long-last, lengthens and waterproof. I can say that both are a very good combination to make perfect lashes.
Repurchase? Hmm, probably if there's any waterproof mascara.
